At the Kenmore West/Niagara Falls game, a fan sitting front row who disagreed with a call by the refs stood up and offered the refs his iPad, saying "Here you go, I got the instant replay right here". The NFHS Pep Band then chanted, "Instant Replay".
McKinley has an 18-game winning streak in the Yale Cup.
In Williamsville North's one-point home loss to Clarence, 70 of its 76 points were scored by underclassmen.
Olmsted played its first nine games with nine different starting lineups. They won six of those games.
Jamestown had its 23-game home winning streak snapped in the 62-49 loss to North.
If Far West Regional reps were to bear out according to how the teams are ranked in the polls currently, we would have the following teams: AA - Falls, A - McKinley, B - Olean, C - Silver Creek. Of those teams, only McKinley can rely on league play for real competition this season.
During Williamsville North's 62-49 win at Jamestown, there was a sign in the JHS student section that read "Taplin Who". After the buzzer sounded, Taplin took the sign and proudly held it up for the North fans. He then took a picture with the girl from JHS who had held the sign during the game. Taplin has since changed his Twitter handle to @TaplinWho.
Canisius senior Adam Weir is just four points shy of 1,000 for his career, a milestone he is sure to achieve in the big rivalry game against St. Joe's tomorrow at the Canisius College Koessler Center.
Jamestown managed just one team assist in its loss to the Spartans.
Newfane's first four wins of the season came against teams with new head coaches: St. Mary's, Grand Island, Barker, & St. Francis.
Ben Drake won his 250th career game as the head coach of Jamestown, when the Red Raiders won at Lancaster on Monday.
Silver Creek is the lone remaining unbeaten team in WNY at 11-0. The Black Knights won their first game by less than 21 points last night, defeating Randolph, 86-79. The Cardinals were the only team besides OTC/MEC to beat Silver Creek last season.
In the Class AA semifinals in 2010, Clarence's Tyler Funk hit a dramatic 3-pointer from the left corner to force overtime against Orchard Park in a game they would go on to win. It was the first 3-pointer of the year for Funk. His brother Ryan who currently plays for the Red Devils, has been almost automatic from the same left corner beyond the arc in the three Clarence games I've seen this year.
Randolph's Bryce Morrison hit nine 3-pointers and scored 39 points in the Cardinals' loss to Silver Creek, the second highest output of the season by a WNY player.
Sam Eckstrom is back in Olean's lineup as of last night against Allegany-Limestone. The junior came off the bench for 13 points, nine rebounds, and four blocks. Early speculation on my part is that Huskies' coach Jeff Anastasia is angling to get Eckstrom the Centercourt Sixth-Man of the Year Award at the Prep Talk/BCANY Awards banquet this April.
